how the program works
My Love Bomb is an eight week experiential education that combines the best of online learning with in person community and small group weekly experiences for creating lasting change in your life. Every week builds on the next, creating a process of gentle unfolding that leads to you embodying the next steps of your life from a grounded and heart-centered place.
The whole process is designed to assist you to bring or deepen the philosophical, spiritual, and scientific principles of choosing love into your life, relationships, and body. This program is perfect for the woman who is on a healing journey- whether it be physical, emotional, or spiritual. It is also well-suited for a woman looking to uncover the next stages of her own growth and evolution, on a personal level, as well as in assisting her to evolve the way she is engaging with the world through relationships and purpose.
The core stages of the journey are entering, evolving, emerging, and engaging. We see the eight week process as a type of "chrysalis" where she enters and then is held by the process itself. Rather than a "push you to break open" rhythm, it is a "hold you as you blossom open" process. I see it much as a bud that is given nutrients and warmth to open into. While your life during the process will continue at it's pace, and many women enter feeling their life is already a bit "out of control" where they are spread thin and busy, it is amazing how women report feeling like life actually slows down. You are adding in the activities of the program, roughly 3 hours of time focused on your own growth spread out in the week, and it is incredible how doing this helps you feel much more in the driver's seat of your own heart and life. This process "slows" the body down from fight or flight habits and lands you into the regenerative process in the body, and therefore also the mind, and your life itself.
During the first 3-5 weeks we focus immensely on "becoming the love bomb" through processes of harmonization, self-love, heart opening, and embodying that "we are enough" through personal inquiry, practice, and group experiences. Weeks 6-8 focus on moving our inherent gifts out into the world as "giving our love bombs" to life from a whole place.
We see how often we head into the world as givers, lovers, and servers from a place of desiring to get love by giving love. To feel like we are finally "enough" once we do enough, achieve enough, show ourselves to be worthy enough. This is why in our programs we spend the first many weeks slowly down that tendency so that we can FEEL that we are enough, we are loved, we are worthy of love, and then we can head out into he world and our lives and give love from an alive circuit where we can also receive it. We are then FREE to love, rather than having to love in order to feel loved.
The essence of the Core Values that we share, explore, and look to embody inside of our program are the same that we share inside of the You Matter Women's Groups, however, in the program we are deep-diving into a safe container to explore them for ourselves, in support of your facilitator and group:
We practice unconditional Love.
We empower and take care of ourselves so that we can do the same for others.
We anchor to the heart.
We believe everyone has inherent value and gifts to offer the world.
We are stronger together.
We forgive each other and ourselves.
We accept responsibility for our actions and their impact on others.
We find power on the other side of our vulnerability.
We have fun. ;)
We take a stand.
We achieve our vision with grit and healthy endurance.
As we do this exploration, we are also learning modern day science that is backing up the philosophical and spiritual ideas, so that our minds can be satisfied by the ideas we are playing with. We broadly look at the chemistry, physiology, epigenetic, and cultural implications of embodying love as we integrate it into our lives on multiple levels. We see that by design we are meant to thrive individually and collectively when we can embody this state of being as our "home base" with acceptance of and allowing of the process of fear and other more difficult emotions as playing a role in our lives.
We see the path of love and heart opening as a courageous one, full of necessity for the thriving of us as individuals and as a collective humanity, and we offer up this program as a means to help us achieve this vision of a better and more fulfilling way of living.
Our next session is September-October, 2018.

your weekly rhythm for the eight week process:
Join the first Monday Night Kick-Off Community Call with Dr. Rhea
The very first Monday of the program Dr. Rhea will kick off your program with a community call for all participants. This will set you up with what to expect for the duration of the program. You will also get to connect to and feel the greater circle of women going through the program outside of your area.
On Sun, Mon, or Tues of each week watch your weekly video lesson on the philosophy and science of love.
These curated videos arrive each week in your inbox and feature experts from the Love Bomb film including Gabrielle Bernstein, Kute Blackson, Elena Brower, Bruce Lipton, Joseph Chilton Pearce, Marilyn Schlitz, Dean Radin, and John Welshons. You will move deep in to the principles introduced in the film, presented in such a way that you will explore how you want to make them your own. Move through layers of what love means, looking at it from every angle and how it relates to every aspect of your life, relationships, and health.
During your video lesson you will be guided to complete your worksheets for examing how what you have learned applies to your life.
This layer of the program offers you space for personal reflection, growth, and step by step worldview change from fear to love. This intentional inquiry will help you to steer your life into the future in a way that builds more harmony in every area of your life, including aligning with your deepest purpose. You will identify where you want to build change, how you want to bring more love into your life as a "love bomber", and begin step by step actions for doing so.
Wednesday or Thursday
Attend the in person portion of your program with the group that you have selected in your city. (Available on Bainbridge Island, Tacoma, Portland, Arcata, Oakland, S. San Francisco, San Mateo, Napa, Durango, Steamboat Springs, The Ozarks, S. Pendleton, & More; Consider bringing it to your city through the 2018 My Love Bomb Facilitator Training Experience kicking off April 27, 2018).
In this 1.5 hour in person facilitated group process you will get to move from the analytical side of your worldview change into the somatic, heart based portion. This is achieved through unique experiences designed to bring spiritual ideas into realities so that they can become tangible in your life right now. These are created by Dr. Rhea inspired by her work in professional modern dance improvisation and choreography, acting, and yoga teaching and designed for the total novice. These small groups, of maximum 10 persons, are facilitated by My Love Bomb Graduates who have gone on to complete the My Love Bomb Program Facilitator training. They offer peer to peer guidance as members of your community that are also dedicated to choosing Love over Fear. During the course of the program EVERYONE is going through the program, from facilitators to students, so that there is no one "up on a podium." We recognize that we are all in progress and that some of us have developed the skills to powerfully help lead the way along the journey.
Receive a weekly recap video message from Dr. Rhea in your inbox and head into the weekend integrating what you have experienced, and ready for the next layer.
